Josef Záruba to replace Jakub Knoll in season finale
This weekend hosts the Lamborghini SuperTrofeo Europe season finale. It takes place at Paul Ricard circuit in Le Castellet, France and the Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra is going to race there with a changed line-up and ready for the battle in the LB Cup category.
As Jakub Knoll still does not feel very well after his accident in Barcelona, he is going to be replaced by another experienced driver Josef Záruba. The Czech driver will join Bronislav Formánek. “Jakub still feels pain in the rib area, so we’ve decided that after missing Spa-Francorchamps, he should also sit out races in France. That means that after some time, Bronislav Formánek will be joined once again by Josef Záruba. Both drivers know each other well from Spring testing, so we believe that we can do a good result,” says the team manager Jiří Mičánek jr.
Similar expectations also apply for the other crew with Libor Dvořáček and Kurt Wagner. They currently hold 3rd place in the LB Cup category standings.
“Libor and Kurt have been consistent since the first race. They take points and trophies, and we hope that it can last also for this weekend. They would both deserve a good result and we, as a team, aim to do everything in our power to help them,” adds Jiří Mičánek.
